I like to look at a man and make decisions by the company that man keeps. Seeing how Vanderboegh and Rawles are so chummy and all. So I decided to take a close look at the GODFATHER….. Mr. Rawles, Interesting that he makes soooooo much money pimping doom. Hey don’t get me wrong I am a firm believer in capitalism. Perhaps we need to play the seed pimp game once again.
I opened up one of his advertisers for garden seed, guess what? I could not find one reference on what the seed weighed…… plenty of different types of packages offered, yet zero weights or measure were given, mmmmmnnnnnn.
Here is the Godfathers link: http://www.survivalblog.com/
And here is the link to one of his seed pimps on his site:http://www.everlastingseeds.com/
Here are the seeds offered in the ” Fall Garden Package for $90.00 plus shipping”: That’s right folks 180 seeds per variety. Eighteen varieties offered for the “Fall Garden Package”.
Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage,Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Beets, Parsnip, Rutabaga, Globe Onions, Leek, Kohlrabi, Collards, Swiss Chard, Chives, Radishes, Snow Peas, Spinach
All Seed Counts are *188 Seeds Per Variety*
Here is a picture of three of those varieties taken from his list, I used lettuce seed as an approximation as to what most of his varieties would look like, E.g. endive, carrots, chive, onion, cabbage etc. Shown in my picture is 188 each of lettuce, peas, and spinach.
The peas would be the larger seed of most of the offered, as a courtesy I am weighing the larger pea seeds for my means or average. Here is a picture of the three seed varieties at 188 count each. Just under two ounces if we then take the average (Heavy average) and do the math…. it’s 18 divide it by 3 and then 6 x 2 ounces = 12 ounces, now remember this is a very heavy average because I am using the larger pea seeds. The real total would probably be around 6 ounces for about 100 bucks.
I could do this all day long, So the Godfather has become a multi millionaire selling ad space and hocking wares, the entire time fleecing the unwashed. Yet Mr. Rawles has the audacity to tell us how we should or should not live our lives concerning the Citadel and or Three Arms, folks this is duplicity, it is highway robbery and it stinks to high heaven.
Six fucking ounces of seed for 100 bucks….. you have got to be shitting me. Perhaps the Godfather needs to learn how to mind his own damn business, or perhaps he can go ask Sopsey how the hell the Feds have not confiscated his guns yet.
Now you know why there is ZERO MENTION OF PACKAGE WEIGHTS. Hey Rawles…. GO FUCK YOURSELF.
